Born in Ayrshire, Scotland, I am a contemporary fine artist, performance artist, filmmaker, storyteller, and poet.

My early career was in science and agronomy, working in Developing Countries on sustainable food production, and teaching AIDS Awareness in Africa. Also, I ordained as a Buddhist monk for a few years, studying Buddhist art and philosophy.

From the performance of Leigh Bowery and Matthew Barney; the sculpture of Yayoi Kusama and Niki de Saint Phalle; the paintings of Alan Davie and Richard Dadd; the humour of Monty Python; and the philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre and William Blake, my artistic endeavours of painting, performance, and poetry have evolved.
